Ba River flood mitigation dredging

A major river in Fiji, the Ba River flows through the town of Ba, a significant agriculture and industrial city on the island of Viti Levu. During the wet season, severe flooding regularly causes damage to local infrastructure and the lives of people in the area.

Hall Pacific was engaged in 2015 to assist in managing this issue. Our team dredged 450,000m3 of sediment from the river to reduce the effects of flooding.
